For those who have TMJ pain, there are usually several treatment options that can be used to help. I am usually surprised by how many patients we see who were told they would have to live with this type of pain.  The new technologies allow us to treat TMJ or TMD even more predictably than before. In additon to a comprehensive evaluation, one new technology is using a CBCT scan to see the head and neck.  This is not a medical CT scan, but a CBCT scan and the radiation is minimal and way lower than any medical CT scan. We personally use the NewTom in our office which gives crystal clear images and allows me to see what is happening to the joint in terms of position, deterioration, and disc displacement.  The neck is usually involved in TMJ treatment and can also be visualized so the correct diagnosis can be made.  The two photos are one of many that we can obtain.   This assist us with our treatment modalities and long term help for our patients who come in for TMJ treatment.   If you have any questions about Houston TMJ or Houston TMJ treatment please feel free to contact our office, Ronald W.
